Smartphone OrienteeringUsing the MapRun6 app

Map Run phone app

The Maprun app allows you to use your smartphone to enjoy orienteering at any time. We have set up MapRun courses all across Glasgow, which you can go and run right now, with more new ones being added. The only difference from a “traditional” course is that there are no physical markers on the ground. Instead, your phone tracks your location as you run and vibrates or buzzes to confirm when you’ve reached each control point on the course.

New to Orienteering?

Visiting A Control Marker

Orienteering is an exciting adventure sport suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
